Re: Dora 2

Re: Better Plugs

I would imagine that the main difference is 90,000km on the first set. Would be a better test to compare new with new.

Re: My 84 500SEL

Sounds like a nice car.
Please do post updates on the work you do to it.

Re: Car of the week

Its generally pretty reliable, but if it fails, the car is not operative and it can be extremely expensive to fix. Sometimes it's just some speed sensors, but not always.

Re: 560sec ece

The radiator started leaking from the top tank on the SEC, so I have a new one.
